just a reminder:
The DL-DX RTTY Contest runs again this weekend, starting Saturday,
5 July at 1100 UTC until Sunday, 6 July, 1059 UTC.
This contest is especially interesting for it's various competition
classes. There is a distinction between SO1R (classes A-E) and SO2R
(or even SO-multiple-R) (classes F-G). Further classes distinguish
between antennas, not power. There are classes for owners of (high)
gain antennas (classes A and B) and simple ones (classes C and D).
This way owners of small aerials like dipoles/groundplanes will find
this contest interesting.
Hams having little time to spend in contesting might enter one of the
6-hour classes (B and D). Even a short time effort may result in an
award winning position. Choose the times of highest activity. Only
the first 6 hours will be eligible but you may continue in the contest
just for fun.
Breaks must be not shorter than 60 minutes.
Entrants for classes F and G are only limited by the conditions of their
licence and physical or mental stamina.
The different classes are: (number of 2007 participants in parenthesis)
Class A: SO1R AB(all bands) - (158)
Class B: SO1R AB 6 hours - (107)
Class C: SO1R AB limited antennas - (123)
